Maidens earn perfect score in cross country competition
Pictured, in no particular order, are Reyna Munoz, Alexia Davis, Lesly Munoz, Aly Toledy, Destiny Garcia, Lixsel Vega and Naomi Beale.
To earn a perfect score in cross country, a team must have its members finish in the top five spots.
It isn’t a feat accomplished very often, but the Jacksonville Maidens pulled it off at the Grace Cougar Invitational.
The 5,000-meter race was held at the Southside Baptist Church campus.
In their first dual meet of the season, Jacksonville contended with Lindale.
First across the finish line was Reyna Munoz in a time of 22:30. Alexia Davis secured second with a time of 22:59.
Rounding out the top five were Lesly Munoz, third, 23:22; Aly Toledy, fourth, 24:34; and Destiny Garcia, fifth, 25:35.
Just behind her teammates was Lixsel Vega in sixth place with a time of 26:17.
Naomi Beale completed the course as the 13th runner with a time of 29:39.
The junior varsity girls finished second in their 3,200-meter run.
Jasmine Adame was top finisher for the Maidens, completing the course in a time of 16:50 and taking sixth place.
Others running for Jacksonville included Erika Garcia, Katie Tavera, Giselle Mares and Emily Hernandez.
The team will run in the LaPoyner Invitational Saturday, Sept. 21.
